The Emerging Voices Network (EVN) at BASIC is organising Expert Masterclasses. The EVN’s Senior Masterclasses are our opportunity to tap into the fantastic network of experts that BASIC is fortunate to have, to ask them to deliver their expertise to the EVN. The interactive masterclasses are both skills and content-based, facilitated by BASIC’s Inclusive International Security team. This is a primarily digital resource to make access to expertise more equitable for our global, diverse membership.
On Wednesday 22nd March, Ankit Panda, Stanton Senior Fellow in the Nuclear Policy Program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, discussed ‘North Korea’s Evolving Nuclear Force’.
In this masterclass, Ankit Panda takes a look at how North Korea continues to qualitatively refine and quantitatively expand its nuclear capability. This lecture covers the most prominent developments pertaining to delivery systems, nuclear warheads, and nuclear strategy in the country, primarily covering the ongoing military modernization campaign that began in January 2021.
